This has been an all time favourite of my families forever, especially as a Sunday Night sit-down meal. It is a meal you can have all year round and can be served with a salad or roasted veggies depending on the season. It’s also a great meal to take on picnics served cold with salad. Sharing my Slow Cooked Lemon Pepper Chicken.
Slow Cooked Lemon Pepper Chicken
Who else loves their slow cooker just as much as I do? To be able to pop all of the ingredients into the slow cooker turn on and leave just makes my busy life so much easier. And you can cook practically anything in it! Another of our favourites is Slow Cooked Asian Style Oxtail.
A little trick that I learned back when I went to Hotel Management School was to use aluminium foil balls. This lifts your chicken/ meat up off the bottom of the slow cooker and prevents it burning and sticking to the base. It also helps circulate an even temperature flow around the chicken/ meat to allow even cooking.
- Open up the cavity of the chicken and place in the lemon, garlic and thyme.
- Roll up 4 balls of aliminum foil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Rest chicken on top.
- Spray oil the entire chicken. Sprinkle on the lemon pepper.
- Set your slow cooker to high and cook for 3 to 4 hours depending on the strength of your Slow Cooker and the size of your chicken. You will know when the chicken is cooked because it will fall off the bone and there will be no pink.
- Serve with either roasted vegetables, salad and gravey. Any left overs make yummy fillings for sandwhiches or added to a vegetable soup.

Hope your family enjoys just as much as we do.
